    Language and Literature in Education 

    The aim of the book series Language and Literature in Education (ISSN TBA) is to disseminate studies of language education and literature in education. These are the main research fields of the Department of Language Education at Stockholm University, where the most part of the members of the intended editorial board are employed. These researchers are specialized in second, their and foreign language education, multilingualism, and literature in education. Although there are a few journals publishing general educational research in the Nordic countries, there is no forum for publications in the field of language education, and there is definitely a gap to fill, as regards educational perspectives on language and literature. Researchers operating in and outside Sweden are invited to send in proposals for monographs, thematic volumes, or collections of papers. Main language of publication is English. However, other languages are not excluded if motivated by the theme of the volume. Theoretical and empirical contributions are welcome.

    We believe that Language Education and Literature in Education will be fruitful for researchers occupied with language, literature and education, considering the structure and content of a range of school subjects. It will embody a forum for broad perspectives of literacy studies.
